You can find location and amenity information of roadside rest areas on our Travel Map. When visiting the map, turn on the rest area filter and zoom into the area you will be travelling to view where you can stop safely along your travels.

Every year, litter and illegal dumping costs millions of dollars in clean-up charges and can cause damage and disruption to the environment and our communities. Roadside litter can enter storm water systems and cause damage to our beaches and urban wetlands.

Litter and illegal dumping is an offence and penalties may apply.

If a bin is full on your travels, take your rubbish with you until you find one. We all have a role to play in keeping WA litter-free.
